Demetrius Andrade made it clear coming into Saturday’s title eliminator fight that it was a “make or break” moment for him. The 27-year-old Providence, R.I., southpaw and former Olympian had fought less than 10 rounds in the last two-plus years due to logistic reasons. By all rights, he should have been rusty. But Andrade came out on a mission against a tall, lanky and dangerous Willie Nelson, looking to show the crowd at the events Center at Turning Stone Hotel and Casino that physically and mentally, the layoff not only didn’t hurt him but actually helped him.
